"My Dear, it's a scream." Sure, here comes Kay 
breezing around the corner. "Kay" of the Psycho- 
analysis fame, breaking dishes on the stage, with as 
much gusto as she breaks hearts off of it. Kay and 
her roommate play at being Juliettes every Friday 
night. See the advantage of having windows over- 
looking the guest entrance, "Oi Oi." That is the 
remark that issues from 22-24 most frequently. I tell 
you it's a saving grace these two have. If Europe 
doesn't look depleted after Issac gets through gyping 
it then someone will have reformed her in the mean- 
while. 




FRANCES ELEANOR ANDERSON 

"Fran" 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Wellesley Two years 

Odeon '27 Fidelio '27, '28 

"Huh? Oh, I don't know." Thus Fran, with a 
broad grin hides her knowledge of the scenes of 
Hamlet. But in Math she never does. Nine times 
out of ten she's the first one finished and the worst of 
it is, her answer is always right. She has the most 
wonderful hair. Technically, we suppose it should 
be called red; but it is really a wonderful golden 
brown. Perhaps that is why she is so good-natured, 
or maybe it's because in one year she changed from an 
inmate of Sunset to a full-fledged Senior.

Sis is one of those lively little girls that makes us 
wonder if there's anything she can't do. When 
playing basketball she flies around so rapidly that we 
never know what it is all about until we find she has 
scored again. As Chairman of the Entertainment 
Committee, she has given us some pleasant evenings 
and one hair-raising experience at the Costume party. 
Added to the amazing array of accomplishments is 
her ability to swing a cheer leading stick. She can!

Do you want to laugh? Go find Bunny, she will 
keep you in stitches; she is endowed with that rare 
quality which Miss Chickering defines as ''Bliss 
humour." Being happily endowed by nature with a 
long and limber form as well as "smooth" looks she 
does active service on the Abbot stage as a man. Her 
ability to be at the right spot at the right moment 
while playing basketball is of great value to the 
fortunate Gargoyles. To the best of our knowledge 
this includes all of her most well known idiosyncras- 
ies except "Life." Some day when feeling bold non- 
chalantly remark that "Judge" has it all over "Life."

"Kay" 

Montclair, New Jersey 

Senior Play '28 Two years 

Kay is one of our class musicians and is among the 
few taking the music course. The practice rooms 
will miss her next year. We never yet went into the 
music studio without finding her there. Her room- 
mate and Louise Tobey testify that she's very kind 
hearted and easv to get along with. Quite a rep. 
Kay!

Honor Roll '27, '28 

Much rushing and perhaps a toothbrush skidding 
along the corridor — it is only Ruth and her room- 
mate running for room No. 36, as the lights grow 
dimmer. It is this nightly sprint that keeps Ruth in 
condition for spring track. Ruth spent the past 
summer in Europe and returned to school a week late, 
but, just the same, she made the Honor Roll — per 
usual. She handles our class monies in a way that 
seems to please Miss Mason and so, of course, pleases 
us.

"Who is playing the lead?" Dottie, of course. 
What Abbot play is complete without her? Not 
the least famed of her performances was at the Senior 
Picnic. When we want a chaperon we will engage her. 
When looking for Dot Dow search first, last, and 
always in the Senior Parlor. Here she may always 
be found in the exact center of a circle of girls. We 
hear she's surrounded at home quite as much.

Laddie, will you please take your nose out of that 
Latin grammar long enough for me to do a write-up 
about you? That girl does study and the nice part of 
it is that she obtains the desired results. Once in a 
while, though, you hear that trickle of laughter run 
up the scale when she and Betty cavort together. 
And, she's the kind that will give you a cracker when 
you're just starving — pretty much all right.

"Miss Hammond, don't you agree?" This is a

snooze while Jean and Miss Hammond discuss the 
relative merits of this and that. Ah Jean, how many 
predicaments you've brought us out of by keeping 
our fair instructress thus engrossed. Quite seriously, 
however, you have something to talk about and your 
literary compositions show it. We shall expect to 
see in the next ten years a new magazine on the news- 
stands; and may it be as successful as our own Courant 
which you manage so well.

We think Gee Gee has more spare time on her hands 
than anyone in our Class. She's only President of the 
"A" Society and Q. E. D. and Business Manager of the 
Class Book and Secretary of A. A. A. and in the Senior 
Play and a few little things like that — really nothing. 
Gee Gee and Jo Jo are an example to all roommates for 
their really remarkable dispositions. If they ever 
disagree we never know it, that is, of course, except 
on the subject of Harvard and Yale. Run down 
Harvard to Gee Gee and she'll not love you. Aside 
from that she'll stand almost anything!

What would we do without Fran? Who else could 
so successfully preside over Student Council meetings? 
Who else would receive fifty-three page letters and 
daily cablegrams? Who, other than Fran, could so 
determinedly defend the Gargoyles' goal, as, almost 
hidden behind her enormous shin guards and armour 
she valiantly moves her hockey stick. Although 
Fran can look very dignified and solemn, anyone who 
lives on the second floor front can, perhaps, explain 
those undignified chortles that re-echo through the 
corridor occasionally.

Peg does have such a hard time bringing up all the 
day scholars in the way they should go. Between 
that and being Psycho-analyzed now and then she's 
rather busy. Her front row seat in Chapel is very 
wearing on her, she says. We've noticed that she 
often works off steam in English Class with Diz. 
Last, but not least, of her accomplishments is Hockey. 
Lead her to the Hockey field, hand her a stick, and 
watch her go!

Did some one make a remark that thrills the school 
with its brilliance and wit? Diz, of course. We can 
count on her to liven up the deadliest moment in the 
Senior parlor. She coaches basketball most ably: 
she creates poetry, prose or what have you; she sports 
at the prom on the hill. How about. that, Diz? 
And as for any riding party — Diz may be found with 
her horse's nose one-half inch ahead of Mr. Phillips. 
We hear she advocates mud baths en route as a health 
cure and recreation.

Bang, bang, shouts, squeals! If you open the door 
to number 53 you will probably find Weegie and others 
squatting on the floor playing "I doubt it." This 
is often the case, especially when she comes to some- 
body's room to make a pie bed, or to hide alarm clocks 
set for some unearthly hour, or to turn the whole 
place generally upside down. And once in a while 
she is serious, too, for instance when she generously 
offers you a piece of bread spread with cheese and cold 
cream. But (outside of her playful moments) Weegie 
is a good sport and a fine friend.

"I tell you, you cannot force me to do it:" Betty 
isn't defying Miss Bailey, only practicing her favorite 
elocution for the week. The masterful tones ring 
out over the transom and we wonder if poor Laddie 
isn't getting killed in the excitement. Never mind, 
Betty, if we practiced as much as you do we might 
get a "Sir Andrew" and do it as well.

Volley Ball Team '27 

Dot Jennings is famous for those curls which so 
gracefully adorn her head. She seems rather quiet 
and demure, but with those whom she knows she is 
very talkative and amusing. Being a day scholar she 
has not has a chance to know many of the Seniors 
intimately, but at Intervale we all came to know her 
better. We hear she was one of those who went on 
the wild escapade across the river. Isn't that proof 
enough of her endurance?

Numerals '26, '27, '28 

Of Bea's accomplishments three predominate. 
First, her athletics, second, her singing and third, her 
roommate. Her proficiency in track is shown by the 
fact that she broke Abbot's record in the broad jump 
in '27. As for her singing, she has favored us with 
many a solo in Davis Hall. Finally she is seldom, if 
ever, seen without her roommate and where one is 
there the other is also. Although they really do not 
look alike Lane and Leavitt are often mistaken for 
each other. We have no fear for Bea out in the cold 
world, but we do wonder what she'll do minus Helen.

Helen is one of the "Strong Silent" members of our 
class. In Class Book Board meetings where the rest 
of us talk all the time she gives her valued opinion 
only when asked for it. The faculty think that's a 
quality others of us might cultivate. Helen is a 
competent member of our infant Society and she cer- 
tainly deserves the honor. How fortunate that she 
and Bea are on the same page!

Eleanor's favorite spot is a corner of Mrs. Burn- 
ham's studio, but that is not remarkable when one 
has as fine a voice as Eleanor. We always look for- 
ward to a Students' Recital when we hear she is to 
perform. Eleanor is invaluable as hostess to the 
returning D. O. G's of recent years. She makes them 
feel at home again in our low-heeled, cotton-stock- 
inged midst. We hear she's one of the shining 
lights of Odeon too.

Nivvy has the cutest clothes and never a wrinkle

distinction, and, speaking of distinction, she's our star 
organist and music is her chief interest. She plays an 
active part in Aeolian and is busy every minute 
because, aside from her music, she's preparing for 
College. We know she's going to be a wonderful 
organist someday. We have great hopes for you, 
Nivvy!

her as Harry in Miss Civilisation and what would 
certain stunts have been without her? Jo is not only 
a talker but also a writer and we are all acquainted 
with her poetry. Her ambition, we hear, is to be 
an authoress. Keep it up and you'll get there, Jo.

"I'd like to see anyone try to make me" and every- 
one in the Senior Parlor is very quiet while Pipe goes 
on the war-path. But she's really very calm and effi- 
cient when calling the roll in class meetings and she 
writes beautiful records of the last one. Her pet 
aversions are being tickled and French. One day one 
of the faculty found out her views on being tickled. 
The rashest thing she's done yet is to decide to let her 
hair grow.

"Oh, you are so bourgeois!" and with a superior 
air of scorn Mrs. B-rewster reduces poor Mabel to a 
humble victim of psycho-analysis. Marion was a star 
all right in "Suppressed Desires." She will be a 
second Mrs. Gray yet. With Dottie as a shadow (or 
is she Dottie's? — they are both so slim they hardly 
cast one anyway), she cannot help but be successful 
on the stage if she keeps it up. We hope that she will 
deign to grace the stage in Davis Hall sometimes so 
that future classes may enjoy her acting as we have.

Who can forget the solos at the Senior Picnic? Sue is 
our only "five-yearer" but this is her first year as a 
boarder. We don't see how we managed without her 
before. It must be very tempting to be able to see 
your house from your windows, and she often yields 
and goes home for a meal. So far she has come back

from any spot within a radius of ten miles, one of the 
advantages of being Head of Hiking. We hope she 
goes to Radcliffe now after breaking Miss Mason's 
heart by dropping survey of science. Kay really 
isn't at all fearsome, but when she plays basket ball

Last year none of us knew Connie very well because 
the little time that she was in Draper Hall was spent 
in telling Kay, Helen, and Jane to hurry up. However, 
this year she appears to be quite an intelligent 
person inasmuch as she was able to reply correctly 
to her roommate's query as to who wrote Lindbergh's 
"We." Whether or not Connie will take up social 
service work is still a matter of doubt; but we can be 
fairly sure that the "being" who keeps the mailmen 
all the way from California busy will occupy a good 
deal of her time.

Betty is quite a travelled young lady after a summer

would never know it. She is one of those miracles 
who don't mention it unless asked to and is just the 
same as she was last year. She does try so hard to 
look solemn behind those big glasses but she hasn't 
fooled us. Although most of the boarders never see 
her except in Class that is enough to make us know 
what a lot Draper Hall has missed in not having her

through the air — you'll have to add another inch or 
two for future use, that's all there is to it. That inch 
would put you so much further from the wandering 
mice that often come into our sight. Of course we 
don't believe the story of the bed springs breaking 
because of a sudden leap — or that the villagers tore 
out into the night because of the siren shrieks, but it's 
always best to be prepared.

Bozie claims the distinction of being the first Cap- 
tain of the Griffins and she has succeeded in stirring 
up as much admiration among the Gargoyles as among 
the Griffins. She is an all-round athlete; she swings a 
wicked hockey stick all fall, does fancy skating at the 
Winter Carnival and breaks track records all spring. 
Aside from her athletic pursuits she is an admirable 
President of Philomatheia. Who knows but what at 
our fiftieth reunion we may have a famous scientist 
in our midst.

from Montana she had no flowing tresses — but how 
those Bobby-pins have changed her looks! Patty 
is very seldom without a book in her hand. Pro- 
bably by the end of the year we will see her putting

the way, is one of the most dangerous jobs in School 
but Patty seems to have survived it.

know that is the way Alex is. What will it be like 
next year when Madame doesn't have Theo to parler 
francais at her table six weeks at a time. She surely 
is the life of that table. And she has had practice

Can you imagine the two Kays going to a Masque-

Kay is undignified at times (in choral) she can be very 
serious (leading A. A. A. meetings). She certainly 
deserves to be congratulated on the way she has 
succeeded with the Gargoyles and the Griffins. Aside 
from her ability to wield a hockey stick ferociously 
she is a great actress (actor, we mean) — witness 
her debut as a hard boiled crook last year. And 
moreover, we've all come over to her side of 
the Nicaraguan question due to her convincing 
arguments on the subject.

Resume of tije &ct£ of 1928 

I. "The Comedy of Errors" 

Characters: Fairly young Preps who show a marked tendency towards bash- 
fulness. 

The action of this play took place so many years ago that we are fortunate 
to have a sole survivor in Susan Ripley. The movement at this stage was 
somewhat slow and full of difficulties which now must not be treated as 
tragedy but pure comedy. 

II. "Much Ado About Nothing" 

Characters: Somewhat cocky Juniors most efficient in telling others what to do. 
The action of this play was full of hurry and business but strange to say 
nothing in the end was seen but wiser children trained by many a patient upper 
classman. The importance of the moment loomed great in the inexperi- 
enced eye. 

III. "Measure for Measure" 

Characters: Somewhat subdued Junior Middlers who are "feeling their oats on 
the sly." 

Now the action picked up a little and steadily yet slowly gained momentum. 
This act left you with the premonition that great things are to come and this is 
but an apprenticeship for the actors. 

IV. "As You Like It" 

Characters: Sweet and helpful Senior-Middlers always there when you want 
them and when you don't, too. 

The spirit in this act was superb — always bobbing up in crises and holding 
out valiantly to the grand finale. This act walked away with some honors 
but they must not be mentioned in the light of that which is to come. 

V. "All's Well That Ends Well" 

Characters: Preoccupied Seniors either always beginning something new or finish- 
ing something old or in the middle of something awfully important (this tends to 
irritate those critical members of the audience.) 

The action in this started quite well and even managed to win some favorable 
comments but as the play continued it took a strange turn almost tempest-like. 
As the inevitable end drew near a strong bond of loyalty among the actors was 
the final impression gained by all the audience. Every last ounce of pep and go 
was put into this last scene of the fifth act to make the grand climax of the play.

'Twas a perfect graduation day with the cloudless sky of June, 

And I thought of all the class apart and where we'd be so soon, 

When suddenly there opened wide the senior parlor door, 

And the girls of twenty years from now came trooping 'cross the floor. 

And first of all Kay Adams came and she told me, with a laugh, 

That she was selling fancy soaps at a dollar and a half. 

Fran Anderson, or Francie, she still so liked her name, 

Was now a wealthy architect of no uncertain fame. 

Our Sis, gymnastic teacher, had turned out at least a score 

Of strong Olympic champions, with promises of more. 

And Bunny said she was preparing books for publication, 

And that Clarissa Harlowe was her very best creation. 

Kay Bornemann lived in Europe and had quite forgot her scales 

Since she had gone to England and had met the Prince of Wales. 

Then Cushie came serenely with a smile upon her face, 

As our Alumnae treasurer she found her destined place 

Then Dotty Dow, an actress, married to her leading man, 

And Lois teaching Virgil — Oh, you ought to hear her scan. 

Jean Frederick was a writer of the very "nth degree", 

And Gee-Gee had a husband just as rich as he could be. 

And Fran, a charming matron now, still had the Stu-G. habit, 

While all her seven daughters reeled off Shakespeare up at Abbot. 

Peg Graham still wrote debates on Scott and Barrie for the papers, 

And Dizzie on the stage was being paid for cutting capers. 

Louise had become a minister and worked one day a week. 

And Betty Jack was coaching the part of Sir Andrew Aguecheek. 

Dot Jennings now was married to a Duke (who liked the girls) 

And when he first saw Dotty he just couldn't resist those curls. 

Bea Lane and Helen Leavitt had a Bachelor's Apartment, 

And both were teaching college in the Musical Department. 

Miss Leech came next, so proud to be her father's secretary 

And Nivi had married an Irishman, just to be a bit contrary. 

And then our Pie, the same old Pie, adorable and funny, 

Right out for anything at all, but 'specially out for money. 

And next as social hostess was our charming Marion Quin 

And Susan doing wonders with a haunted violin. 

34 



The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 

Kay Ross was there with bells on; not a thing could her dishearten, 

For she had to be optimistic as a teacher of Kindergarten. 

Our Connie was a reformer now in many a Portland street 

And Betty Ryan taught French IV as "Mademoiselle Petite." 

Still Betty Schuh wrote essays that were never known to fail. 

And Emmy had a Winter Resort at good old Intervale. 

And Patty was a famous preacher out in her Montana, 

And made a dollar at every word and called it all just "manna." 

Jean Swihart had kept up her work and also all her care, 

The first of women presidents, she occupied the chair. 

Oh, Theo, what an awful thing such dire distraction does, 

Forever absent-minded, she'd forgotten what she was. 

Babs Vail was quite a lady in the King of England's palace. 

Bob Wentworth had a special feature dance with Mary Alice. 

Bet Whitney kept her husband's house in quite a perfect state. 

And Kay Willauer wrote many a Senatorial debate. 

And I? Well, I was there, and still endeavoring to write, 

With Shakespeare, Burns, or Chaucer as an ever present light, 

And now to tell a secret that is just between us two, 

I never saw a bit of this — it really isn't true. 

But wouldn't it be funny if the future course of Fate 

Should prove a little bit of this to dear old "Twenty-Eight?" 

Josephine G. Paret.

One bright February afternoon in the year nineteen hundred and twenty-eight, a 
train slowly stopped before a tiny station situated far away in the New Hampshire 
Mountains. Instantly a joyous crowd of Abbot Seniors burst forth, for they had 
reached their destination, Intervale. A sleigh and two pairs of impatient horses 
awaited them around the corner, and jumping in they were soon off over the ice and 
snow. And what fun proved to be in store for them! For not only was there skiing, 
sliding, skating, snowshoveling, and tobogganing, but also Bacon Bats, mountain 
climbing, trailing, and numerous other exciting events. No wonder they were a 
happy crew! 

At Intervale, far away from the rest of the world, they stayed three whole days 
with Miss Bailey as a loving companion. In the early morning they watched the 
mountain peaks turn crimson with the rising sun. In the evening they wandered 
over the paths of snow guided by the moon. They were happy there, but why not 
— for isn't Intervale just the best place in the world ?

(Tune — "I'm coming Virginia"} 
We're coming back Abbot, we're coming to stay, 
Don't hold it against us for running away; 
We're glad to be back here although we've had fun. 
With all those winter sports of different sorts 
That kept us on the run. 

We're coming back, Abbot, we don't want to roam 
Again from your shelter, our Andover home. 

(Tune — "Bonny Dundee"} 

To the Seniors of Abbot, dear, B. B. did speak 
Saying: Intervale that is the place you should seek. 
And if you'll pass all your exams with an "A" 
Why maybe I'll take you there some winter's day. 

So we all worked so hard that we passed with an "A" 

At least so we hoped on that glorious day. 

And we boarded the train and we left you behind 

And we told you we'd send you a post-card in time. 

Then we used all our Math to count steaks that we ate, 
And we figured is must be at least ninety-eight. 
And we toasted marshmallows far into the night, 
And no Mr. Scannell could turn out the light. 

So we're telling you now that you'd better be good, 
If you want to go up to the mountains and wood. 
And we'll everyone say it's some place to go, 
And then we're not telling you all that we know. 

(Tune — Diane' ') 

It was heaven where we went to play; 

Intervale we love you. 

You're a spot which is dear through the years 

Rolling on, Intervale. 

We were glad we could go there to learn 

What the others have known, 

And to build up our friensdhips so firm 

Once again, Intervale.

O, you Seniors? 

Yes, we had a lot of fun 

Look how fat we have become 

But you're young things and could not leave your teachers. 

Did you go to see a show? 

Asked the little Junior-mids. 

Did you go to see a show 

O, you Seniors. 

Yes, we went to see a show 

It was Diz-Ike and the snow 

But you're young things and could not leave your teachers. 

Did you have a chance to skate? 

Asked the eager Senior-mids. 

Did you have a chance to skate, 

O, you Seniors? 

Yes we had a chance to skate, 

In the moonlight very late, 

But you're young things and could not leave your teachers. 

Did you all enjoy the view, 

Asked the Faculty so dear 

Did you all enjoy the view 

Honored Seniors? 

Yes, we all enjoyed the view, 

For we had no work to do, 

We are grown ups and we can leave our teachers.

(Tune — "A Capital Ship for an Ocean Trip"} 

O, the place to go for a jaunt in the snow is up at Intervale 

For a speedy ride on a toboggan slide or a hike up a Mountain Trail. 

But we say that for a Bacon Bat where doughnuts fly in the air so high-i-i 

It can't be beat for a Senior treat you'll get there bye and bye. 

O over the icy snow a trailing we did go 

We slide down the hill with many a spill and into the brook below-o-o 

O here's to the mountains high that tower to the sky 

A climb to the peak a view to seek 

A rollicking crowd we go. 

(Tnne — "A Li tie Bit of Heaven"} 

Sure a little bit of heaven fell from out the sky one day 
And it nestled in New Hampshire, not so many miles away; 
And when the angels found it, sure it looked so sweet and fair, 
They said, "Suppose we keep it for it is so peaceful there." 
So they sprinkled it with sunshine just to make the pine trees grow, 
They're the finest ones that can be found, no matter where you go. 
And they placed the mountains 'round it, just to keep away the gale, 
And when they had it finished, sure they called it Intervale.

Dear ruddy oak, so young and strong, 
Kindred we are to thee; 
We in our lives like thee aspire 
Noble and great to be. 

Lend us thy strength, O stalwart oak, 
Lend us thy valiant power; 
Give us a vision of thee to keep 
Fair as thou art this hour. 

Symbol of strength that Abbot leaves 
Deep in our hearts to dwell, 
Great is the courage thou dost give 
Now as we say farewell.

parting ffivmn 

Father, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see; : 
But I ask Thee, for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
: And to wipe the weeping eyes : 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To soothe and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatsoe'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts, 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: While keeping at Thy side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.

gfobot &cabemj> Comprefjentfibe examination 

Note: Read the question thoughtfully; if after the tenth reading it is no clearer, it 
never will be: so go on to the next. If you can't answer the question asked, 
answer one of your own invention and get credit for originality. 

I. Choral: 

1. Compare this with the methods of torture used by the Spanish Inquisition. 

a. Would you say this was worse? 
Define your reasons clearly. 

2. Name the advantages of having it in the music room. 

Hint: Such as: — more crowded, floor is harder than benches, every one is more 
uncomfortable. 

3- Show how above advantages tend to sweeten the tone and disposition of 
all. 

II. Bible: 

1. Name some of the profits prominent in a Bible course such as: renting your 
note-book the week before note-books are due; selling text books at cost plus 
50% for valuable illustrations. 

2. Give some benefits you have derived from Silent Times. 

a. Discuss: How I clean my room, prepare Math and Latin and write home 
in the twenty minutes before Chapel. 

(Optionaf) 

b. The help I have received watching P. A. youths in Sunday afternoon 
Silent Times. 

III. Mathematics: 

1. (Seniors only). Divide a pie into ten equal pieces, four of which must be 
"not too large." 

2. Calculate the number of hours necessary for one day if you carry five 
subjects, and put in two hours of study for each, plus seven hours of classes, plus 
an hour for silent time, plus eight hours of sleep, plus one hour for eating, and 
minus any time for recreation.

3. If a girl spent four hours on Math, six hours on English, three hours on 
French and five hours on Latin what would be the two results?* 

4. If a girl and a boy start from Davis Hall after the Prom and walk around 
the Circle how long will it take them to reach the guest entrance if: 

a. There is a full moon? 
h. A chaperon near by? 
*A contented teacher and a busy undertaker. 

IV. English: 

Allow plenty of time for concentration and make everything as vague as 
possible. If you know any really good jokes tell them; a hearty laugh may put 
the examiner in a good humour. 

1. In your own words tell as briefly as possible why you think the ash can 
the best place for Spencer's Faerie Queene. 

2. Cure Mate thy suawie fate, 

The histie stibble kirk behand the gate, 
Their hydra drouth o'winter waur, 
Sprattle deep-lairing beneath a scour; 
Och Mamie gangs agley — 
Sae rountinly awa'. 
A Bonnie, bonnie, bonnie, 
It's fonnie, fonnie, fonnie! 

Why is this one of the loveliest gems Burns ever wrote? Show the beauty of 
rhythm, excellent choice of words and explain the hidden meaning. 

3. Write a four hundred word theme on one of the following: 

How to take bicycles to pieces. 
Why I use flour when I bake muffins. 
How I tripped in a canoe.

&n Cssap on Jfflan 

(With humblest apologies to S. H. P., Columbia Jester). 

Generally speaking men may be divided into three classes, husbands, bachelors 
and widowers. An eligible bachelor is a mass of obstinacy entirely surrounded by 
suspicion; husbands are of three classes : prizes, surprizes and consolation prizes. 

Making a husband out of any man is one of the highest plastic arts known to 
civilization. It requires science, the skill of sculpturing, common sense, faith, hope 
and charity. 

Perhaps travel makes one cynical; at any rate, I write this having come to the 
conclusion that man is too inconsistent to be pleased in any way. Lest anyone 
should take exception to this, I should like to present some of the dilemmas in which 
woman finds herself. 

If you flatter a man you frighten him to death, and if you don't you bore him; 
and if you permit him to make love to you he gets tired of you in the end and if you 
don't he gets tired of you in the beginning. If you believe him in everything you 
soon cease to interest him, and if you argue with him in everything you soon cease to 
charm him; if you believe all he tells you he thinks you are a fool, and if you don't he 
thinks you are a cynic. If you wear gay clothes, rouge and a startling hat he hesi- 
tates to take you out, and if you wear a little brown cloche and a tailor-made suit he 
takes you out and stares all evening at a woman in gay colours, rouge and a startling 
hat. 

If you join him in his gaieties and approve him in his smoking he says you have no 
interest in his welfare, and if you don't he vows you are making his life unbearable. 
If you are a clinging vine type, he doubts whether you have a heart at all, if you are 
silly he begs for a bright mate, and if you are brilliant and intellectual he longs for a 
playmate. If you are popular with other men he is jealous, and if you are not he 
hesitates to marry a wall flower. 

Such inconsistency cannot be pleased!

for man?"')

When we learned that we could have no Bradford Day last fall we were sure that 
nothing could take the place of it, but Gargoyle-Griffin Day came as near to it as 
anything could. Wednesday, November 9th, was a cold, gray day but the orange 
of the Griffins and the green of the Gargoyles made the scene a cheerful one. Jean 
Swihart won the tennis singles for the Gargoyles after an unusually close and inter- 
esting match. After the tennis the Griffins came forward to win croquet and clock 
golf while the Gargoyles finished up the morning with a victory in archery. Lunch 
was a welcome thought and after an hour's rest we fared forth again to the Basketball 
field. The Gargoyle second team brought home a victory over the Griffin seconds and 
the Griffin first team won from the Gargoyle firsts. Both games were marked by 
fine spirit and good playing. The last event of the day, hockey, proved a victory for 
both Griffin teams but they had to work for it. The day was a complete success and 
seems to augur well for the future Gargoyle and Griffin teams.

The Odeon Society presented to us on Thursday, May 3rd, a brief review of the 
American drama together with illustrations from the first American Comedy, "The 
Contrast," by Royall Tyler. The discussion was very interesting and the scenes from 
the comedy extremely amusing. 

On Saturday afternoon, April 14th, the Aeolian Society gave us a review of the 
life and works of Schubert. The selections for voice, piano and organ were pleasing 
and expertly rendered. The last number was the Toy Symphony by the whole orches- 
tra which called forth encore after encore. 

Thursday evening, May 24th, gave us a chance to compare Alfred Emmanuel 
Smith and Herbert Clarke Hoover in their qualifications for the Presidency as pre- 
sented by four members of Q. E. D. Their lives and positions on National and Inter- 
national questions were taken up in detail and we felt much better prepared for the 
coming election. 

A. D. S. has been interested this year in modern, one-act plays. Their work was 
shown by The Ghost Story and Suppressed Desires given in January. Since then a play 
has been read at each meeting. 

Les Beaux Arts has been busy educating our artistic tastes this winter. They have 
displayed pictures from their collection on the bulletin board by the package room 
and have changed it every week. The pictures chosen show discrimination and 
artistic taste. 

Philomatheia gave us a very interesting and instructive talk on Thursday, May 
31st, on the development of transportation. We never knew before from what small 
beginnings our mighty railroad trains came.

DRAMATICS 



The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 



fttoelftfj 32tgf)t 

"O welcome neighbors" who would go with Shakespeare through the land of 
love and jesting. Twelfth Night is enchanting and one of the finest cures of the ages 
for a melancholy heart, at least so thinks the Class of '28. 

Shipwrecked Viola, who as a page in Duke Orsino's court delivered love messages 
of the Duke to Olivia, the charming niece of Sir Toby Belch, was such an unusual lad 
that Olivia, instead of yielding to the Duke's entreaties, fell in love with the mes- 
senger. Her uncle, Sir Toby, was more content with his friend, Sir Andrew, his 
clown, Feste, and servant Maria, than he was interested in his niece's marriage, so he 
found great delight in making a laughing stock of the staid Malvolio. Viola 
was deeply in trouble, since Olivia claimed her as husband; Sir Toby and Sir Andrew 
wanted vengeance for their defeat; and the Duke condemned her for being false; 
wandering Sebastian appeared on the spur of the moment to set matters right while 
Feste left a jolly song jingling in our ears. 

Dorothea Dow, as Viola and Cesario, showed her skill by keeping "love-sweet" 
Viola ever steady at her task, and she made Shakespeare's lines ring with their true 
poetry and expression. She made Cesario a mighty charming lad. Maria, played 
by Katherine Adams, was clever and alert. We felt her keen sense of fun and loved 
her craftiness in tricking Malvolio and in managing matters the way she wanted 
them. Stately Olivia too, played by Marian Smith, deserves praise for her dignified 
and noble impersonation of that famous lover. 

We never knew there were so many fine men in Abbot. Sir Toby Belch! We 
certainly do congratulate Mary Piper on making Sir Toby live in such a natural 
and likeable manner. Very fine work, Mary! Sir Andrew Aguecheeck, Sir Toby's 
bosom companion, played by Elizabeth Jackson, won our hearts with his effeminate 
actions and his clever capers. He added a nice jolly touch to the play. Malvolio we 
loved haughty and smiling. His dramatic reading of the letter, his cross-garters, 
yellow stockings and "Smile, ho, ho" were lovely. You make a fine Malvolio, Gee-Gee. 

Eleanor Leech as Duke Orsino dramatically paved the way for a thrilling drama. 
Sebastian was so much like his sister that it kept us busy remembering which person 
was Sebastian and which Viola. With his fine work he helped to solve an ever 
increasing mystery. Nicely done Connie! Antonio, played by Katherine Borne- 
mann relieved tense moments by always appearing to explain matters. Jean Freder- 
ick, as Fabian, in a most natural way made us feel his keen desire to trick Malvolio. 

The Lords, Ladies, Priest, Sea Captain, officers and gentlemen in waiting' all 
added a brilliant natural touch which made every part more interesting. And 
Barbara Wentworth as Feste created a happy-go-lucky feeling which was most sooth- 
ing for an interested audience. 

We all feel that Mrs. Gray, after many weeks of intense, unfailing work, has 
added another very brilliant touch to her long list of successful productions.

The evening of the Senior-Mid Plays was opened by a delightful piece by Lois 
Hardy and Polly Francis. Lois typified a charming modern girl with real twentieth 
century manners while Polly hypnotized us with her beautiful gown and the quaint 
customs of fifteen century Venice. The climax came when each discovered that her 
own times were the best. The play was artistically portrayed and very enjoyable.

Any play by Barrie would receive a favorable reception but this one was so well 
done that we considered it quite a masterpiece. Every girl played her part with the 
ease and finish of a professional. The three old ladies were essentially alike and yet 
different and they added a clever touch of humor. We loved the way Mrs. Dowey 
took her chance for happiness and were equally fond of the rough, crude soldier who 
became as a son to her. The actors are to be congratulated!

How can we say enough to praise each player in this delightful comedy? The 
King and the Chancellor filled our hearts with terror, the Lady Violetta and Ursula 
struck us dumb with admiration, and we grew very fond of the Knave before the 
evening was over. We were grateful, enthusiastic, and charmed by this colorful and 
clever farce!

On Tuesday evening, January 10th, the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two 
delightfully funny plays. The first, Suppressed Desires, showed the trials of a young 
married man whose wife was obsessed by Psycho-analysis. Marion Quin, as Henrietta, 
the wife, was excellent. Katherine Adams took the part of Mabel, Henrietta's 
sister, who also becomes interested in Psycho-analysis, to perfection. Margaret 
Graham as the poor harassed husband, Stephen Brewster, was extremely good also. 
Stephen Brewster finally convinces his wife that Psycho-analysis isn't as great as 
she thought.

The second offering, The Ghost Story, was very different but quite as well done. 
It concerned the troubles of a shy young man — Mary Alice Mcintosh — in screwing up 
his courage to propose to Anna — Dorothea Dow. He finally did it with the help of a 
crowd of friends, but what agonies he endured before the fatal words were spoken!

On Tuesday evening, May 22nd, we were treated to a glimpse of the work of 
Abbot's budding geniuses in the shape of four plays written by members of the 
English V class and acted by other members of the class. They presented a variety of 
subjects and settings. Each one showed hard work and real achievement. Sing a 
Neiv Song by Katherine Taber Fox was an incident in the early history of Christianity 
in a Roman province. Fishermen s Wives by Priscilla Whittemore gave us a bit of 
tragic realism of modern Norway. The Home Tie by Virginia Gay cheered us with its 
love story of a boy and girl in a Maine seaport town. Jean Frederick's When We 
Were Very Young had special interest for us for it showed Abbot in 1842. The casts
